    Default Help: Looking for info on connecting LoR controller to E1.31 bridge

    Need to understand how to connect LoR controller to E1.31. Is there a different pinout for Cat5 cable? What settings should I use on the E1.31, what jumper etc... Any Wiki's that have this info would be great!

    From my experience, everything Renard has its own wiring. The only way I know of to run a LOR controller is through DMX. I have never seen the picture you are showing. There is a detailed Renard wiki on DoItYourselfChristmas.com You will find every possible wiring diagram there (related to Renard). I don't see where the E1.31 signal originates in your drawing !

    I made the drawing to illustrate what I have. So the PC connects to the E1.31. The E1.31 can communicate DMX or Renard. Since the LOR Controller can talk DMX, and so can the E1.31, if I place the LoR on its own Universe, configure the E1.31 for DMX on that port, it should be able to talk DMX to the E1.31. The Renards are on their own, and are flashed with Renard. My thinking is that since everything is isolated Renard from DMX, its technically possible.

    I just cant seem to find anywhere a guide to using a LoR Controller in a E1.31 configuration and what it takes to do that...
